This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.
Devastating and soul crushing. Kaji's fight for morality becomes the fight for survival. His ideals are broken, he witness nothing but cruelty and despair and yet only his true love keeps him alive, in a way, until the very end.
Nakadai's acting journey through the whole thing should be something to be studied and praised forever.
I was rooting for Kaji so much, but the harsh reality of war also defeated my hopes.
